RE: Norton
Outstanding performance from Norton and Davo ! Why do people put down a British effort ? Is a BMW fitted with k-tech suspension, brembo brakes etc a true BMW ? Or is it just the engine that matters ?

RE: Norton
I know, old Nortons didn't always have Norton engines, very good TT for them and thankfully Davo was ok after his crash in the Senior.

RE: Norton
I think the frame and engine management systems
Have been reworked from last year.I seen them testing at Jerby asked Mick Grant a few questions, he said they are 18 months away from there own engine based on a Aprilia lump I guess.
Think Cam just had a lot of bad luck this year and if it's not going right you can't go out on the island and push hard

RE: Norton
I think the more races the Norton gets the more data collected the more the team can do to improve. I must admit I was impressed with Davo's lap times and a solid finish in the Superbike race, long may it continue and hopefully they will have there own engine in the next few years.
